This is a most unusual and rare little rug of the Khamseh Confederacy, with its indigo-blue ground containing 8 compartmentalised 'guls' (tribal crests).
What is particularly attractive, is the ivory main border with an early cartouche design. Look at the close-up photos to see the best of colour reproduction.
This beautiful little rug, which was probably made around 1880, is in excellent condition.
